And on the contrary, when the light is shut nothing happens. 

The young woman represents the air element, the spirit that can control the fire. If there are lots of winds and oxygen in the air it can blow the fire up and make it bigger and dangerous. But if there is only small quiet wind the fire will stay small and safe.
